that he means what he says when he talks about bipartisanship. to take an idea from governor romney and use it as an overall tax reform. >> yeah, i mean, the ultimate idea here is we want to extract more dollars from the wealthy as part of a shared sacrifice in entitlement cuts. what does it matter whether you label it a deduction cut or 39.6% tax increase? ultimately, you're getting more dollars from this very top group. in fact, this may even be more progressive than 39.6. i'm a little confused as to why there's so much opposition. maybe just because romney proposed it. >> plus, you're simplifying the tax code. that's really an important part of this. you're eliminating some of those special interest fights and loopholes that exist. >> and zerlina, let's face t the election is over. obama has won. just because it was a romney idea, does it make a bad idea? >> no, i'm not saying that anything that romney proposed is a bad idea. i'm saying that it is a fact that he proposed ideas without giving any details. we haven't even really heard any of the specifics behind this particular pla

was it that mitt romney decided he had to lurch as far right as possible? >> it was a disaster. >> how disastrous for us? >> it was a disaster in part. if you say to yourself. and i remember standing there during the debate when romney went after me on this, and you say to yourself, do you have any idea what that's going to look like as a 30-second ad? and of course, romney did worse with asian-americans than he did with latinos. and the reason was pretty simple. the obama message was after they get done deporting them, they're coming for you. so he literally did -- nobody's picked this up yet, but we used to carry the asian-american vote. we've managed in 12 years to totally throw it away. it's almost inconceivable we would do as badly as we did with latinos. the obama campaign began advertising on univision, i think in early may. and i said one-third of the republican effort should have been in the latino community. if you have a zone that's going to make or break you, you better figure out how to carry it or it'll break you. that was a significant part of where we are. and the republicans are
